Ahh, I was bored… waiting for things in real life to settle a bit and putzing around in my workshop. Decided I could be a little productive while messing around right? Sooo… I made up a chore for all you hard working folks out there.
Churning butter! Exciting huh? lol I have some new kitchen items coming out (and some have been at the Gorfest this week) so it seemed to be a good idea to get this out there too. Made almost entirely of sculptured prims it is nicely animated. Churning, sweating and working hard you’ll stand every once in awhile stretching trying to get that kink out of your back before bending back to the task.
Smooth lines, rustic type appeal it weighs in at 8 whole prims. Not too shabby eh? Click the churn to get a plunger, jump on and away you go… Simple! The animation is embedded, no ugly hover text or poseball to clutter your scene just like most of my chores. The anim is adjustable through menus for different avatar sizes.
When I was making up the package for the Gorean Grid Wide Hunt I wanted to add a little bit of everything so people could find something to use. Most of the time when people do grid hunts there is a common complaint. That it is geared towards women and most of the time clothes. In the case of Gorean type stuff a common complaint that I heard was that there was an overabundance of silks or slave type things. Granted that is probably true. I added a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A fountain type thing for the garden, a couple seating furs for panthers/whoever, a bookshelf that was done a little bit nicer for homes and then of course…. a camisk. Aha! Couldn’t help myself. Anyhow….
It was called the Naughty Bits Camisk. Reason being is I cropped it up real high on the hips, and then opened up the front along with the back so that there was really hardly anything there. Sweeping widely across the breasts exposing the nipples and then a real low cut down the front past the belly button type of thing. Mmmhmmm, a wee bit naughty eh? Well I got some awesome feedback on it during the hunt, anyone who missed it can still get it but now its just being offered like any other camisk in my place. At 150L it really isn’t a bad price so don’t feel too badly.
Naughty Bits Kirtle
However as a twist as I was drifting off trying to think of new things to do I thought to myself… “oohh, that’d make one cute sexy ass kirtle too!” Sooooooooo after the hunt I went up to my workshop, piddled round in my paint program to get a texture for the skirts and then made one. Sitting low on the hips with ropes and fabric, and I added a couple sleeves to give it a wee bit of a rugged look. It turned out real nice I think and the great thing is, of course, that the top can be worn by itself as the camisk if you wanted something a little different! I put it down in the clothing section and the new area at the landing point for now for 225L. Enjoy!
Last night very late before I was heading off to bed I released a new camisk. It is a little different than what I generally release clothing
Zhen in Chocolate
wise but it is something that I wanted to work on here and there anyhow. I like camisks, simple… basic clothing that usually isn’t that expensive, along with the fact that if done right can be quite pretty. Silks are nice, but not always practical… especially in laggy sims or around and about. Zhen is available in 5 colors, Chocolate, Green, Red, Grape, and Blue.
I also released a new gardening chore… simpler than the large garden that I put out last week which has room for 5 workers, the gardening chore is a sculptured prim wheel barrow, a small set of plants, a few accessories and a gardening animation to work. Can be placed just about anywhere really.
In other news I moved the main buildings of my store up into the sky at about 500 meters and I’m clearing the land beneath it to redo the layout. For awhile the whole thing has been bothering me (which I think I’ve mentioned before in previous posts and announcements) but I haven’t been able to really work on it. Part of it was because I just didn’t know what to do with everything while I was working. It’s really not so good to be throwing prims around peoples heads as they try to browse through the store, and I really didn’t want to close down completely either. The what if’s started… like… “what if I end up taking longer than I expected.” or “what if I can’t get it right.” Well at least if the bulk of it is up above then I can work in relative peace and hopefully unveil a new layout that will work better and be fun to be around.
One thing I’ve always prided myself upon and tried to do is make my place not so much a ‘store’, to make it not feel like a dull spiritless place of commerce but something that had a feeling… something that was relaxing as well as enjoyable even if you don’t buy a thing. I didn’t want stale, and I’ve never wanted to be just like everyone else. That’s one thing, I like to be unique at least on some level… which to be honest can be rather difficult within SL oddly enough. And so that’s where that is at…. I’ll keep updates coming and hopefully when I get things set the way I like, I’ll reopen the main part of the store with some new stuff, new look, maybe a sale and other goodies.
Some fresh color to brighten even the coldest of places as spring approaches is the order for today. I have a few people salivating asking for new things and got the idea to revamp one of my already popular sets just a little bit for those with spring fever!
My popular Winter Night and Winter Ice sculptured silks are now in four… mhmmm I said FOUR new colors. Generally speaking I don’t really work with a lot of pastel colors, I tend to prefer dark and jewel tones. I think for the most part that comes across in most of my work but I do on occasion decide to go in a bit of a different direction if the mood hits. I always say that I create as my whims flow letting myself just create as it works out. It’s a lot of fun for me to find new ways to express myself and I’m so very grateful that people enjoy my work.
So now that I’ve rambled lets get to it right!? Four new colors… Pink Jellybean, Spring Canary, Spring Mint, and yummy Orange Sherbert! The silks themselves are rather simple, flow nicely and made mostly of sculptured prims wrapping around the body. They utilize a resize menu which for some people is a hassle and I have on occasion offered a copy/mod version without the menu for those who request is specially.
Take a look and keep your eyes peeled! I have plans for this week!
As promised I have finished up a variation set of rags for the more brazen of us out there. The Tattered set that was announced and set out awhile back is now joined with the Tattered Slut. The set has the patched and unpatched version just like the original set of Tattered but this time they’re showier, with more skin showing. Two crop tops that rest right beneath the breasts, and two skirts set on the waist. Along with these variations there is a skimpy little prim skirt that has flexible ragged cloth knotted on fine copper rings. The skirt sits low on the hips, scandelously showing off a slaves body, to round out the collection there is a set of simple armbands to accent along the upper arms.
The Tattered Slut…. in five colors just like Tattered, available on Xstreet or at my in world location.
